The University of Tennessee at Martin has been a member of the Ohio Valley Conference since 1992. In only a short time the UTM tennis program has made its mark on the conference. Both the men's and women's teams are among the best in the OVC. In 1994 and 1995, Coach Dennis Taylor was named OVC Coach of The Year when the women's team won the Conference Championship in each of those years. The men and women varsity tennis players train in some of the best facilities in the conference.The outdoor facilities include sixteen hard courts, a 10,000 square foot training and conditioning area, and a TV tower from which to video tape practices and matches. During inclement weather the teams practice and train in the Elam Center that has five indoor courts. The players also use the Olympic pool and varsity weight rooms during their conditioning and strength training.

The tennis teams at the University of Tennessee at Martin enjoy an advantage over other schools with access to their own tennis center. The center houses the Skyhawk tennis office and serves the needs of the student athlete.
